a share. phil lebeau has more on the problems plaguing that aircraft and boeing. phil? >> tyler, you were showing boeing intraday, go back to last monday. that was the first report after dream liner problem in boston. it's been a roller coaster. but since last monday, down 3.4%, here is more in terms of the investigations. not "investigation", but "investigations." they are sending investigators to japan because of the plane that had an emergency landing yesterday. meanwhile, all nippon and dream liners are grounded. and lij yom ion batteries are the scrutinized batteries as they look at what went wrong with these planes. we mentioned the a and a flight. there was a landing in japan, the pilots saw a battery light come on. a and a says the main battery was discolored and election trol sis solution leaked. the lithium ion batteries are made by a japanese company. the company down roughly 9%. by the way, the battery in yesterday's incident, same as the battery at boston logan airport fire. >>> finally, lot airlines out of poland, taking off inaugural flight today, from warsaw to chicago. to
battery investigation, as well. phil lebeau joins us with the details. phil, we keep hearing more about what's happening. this is some indication of what they knew and when. >> yeah. for the first time we're starting to hear that al nippon airways, the launch customer for the dreamliner, reported to boeing that it had problems with the lithium ion batteries in the dreamliners several times before the incident that we had on january 16 in japan. according to al nippon airways, they've had to replace ten batteries in the dreamliners between may and december. they reported some of those incidents because of power drops with the batteries or because they were undercharged. remember, the volatility of lithium ion batteries if they're undercharged or overcharged, and the gtsb, japan's transport safety board and ntsb have been notified about this. they'll look at the records about how often a&a had to replace the batteries and what happened -- ana had to replace the batteries and what hand. perhaps the batteries have a failure rate that is greater than what you would expect to find or could be

earnings. guys, back to you. >> thanks so much, phil lebeau. the dow jones industrial average 50 points away from 14,000. that 200 points away frommin a all-time high reached back in 2007. if you think that's made marc faber less bearish, you'd be very wrong. despite, that marc is the man behind the gloom, doom and boom report and joins me now to talk markets. good to see you, marc. thanks for joining us. >> my pleasure. thank you for having me. >> so you say regardless of what the markets do near term, a correction is overdue. when do you expect a correction and how significant? >> well, i think it can start any day. we are very overbought but it's also possible that we have a mild correction in february and then a further increase in stock prices, something that would be similar to 87 where in the first half of the year until august the market went up by 41%. to lose 47% in two months in october and november, so it's a possibility that we have a lot of volatility in equity prices. i'm selling shares at the present time. i'm reducing positions because there is euphoria building up. >>
. there was an oil leak and the other a cracked windshield. phil lebeau is tracking information from washington. >> the ntsb said, this is af plane, feel confident if you are playing it. at the same time, the faa launched a special review looking at reliability and safety of the 787 dreamliner. it'll be run by the faa. but boeing will be assisting in that review and so will some of the suppliers, no doubt, as they look at electronics and use of lithium ion batteries on the dreamliner. remember a lithium ion battery was traced to be the source of the fire of the 787 that caught on fire while parked at a gate in boston on monday. in 2007 the faa made special rules for the use of lithium ion batteries on airplanes because of flammability can concerns. with all of that said, listen to what the head of the faa and secretary of transportation add to say when asked point blank, is it safe to fly the dreamliner. >> there's nothing that data has said that would suggest this airplane is not safe. >> i believe this plane is safe and i would have absolutely no reservation of boarding one of these planes an

/3 of a buck. phil lebeau at o'hare in chicago with the latest. hi, phil. >> hi, tyler. the focus is shifting about when boeing might find a solution to the dreamliner being grounded. here's the latest with what's happening with the faa and with boeing and some of the dream liners around the world. they're working with the faa on a possible solution. we say possible, the idea being perhaps to come up with a way of testing some of the lithium ion batteries. we'll have more on that in a little bit. more countries and regions of the world have grounded the 787. the focus is making the lithium iotter to be used inside these planes. the concern for the faa is that there's a fire possibility with the lithium ion batteries. that prompted them to grouped the dreamliners. they're checking those in boston with those from japan and comparing what similarities they might find with those two. by the way, the batteries are made by a japanese firm g. g.s. uwasa. as for shares of boeing, down fractionally today. down 5% since january 7th. for a number of analysts on wall street the question becomes when do y
revenue. >> phil lebeau joins us in chicago with the details. phil? >> we're talking about essentially a mileage tax. and what we're seeing, the first state to do this essentially is is the state of washington. starting next month it will be taxing those who own an electric vehicle $100 per year. why electric vehicles? you can't get a gas tax from those who are charging their car at home. as a result that tax revenue is going into the state transportation fund. why is washington doing this and other states looking at something similar? gas tax revenues are under pressure. first the recession means people are driving less. particularly painful for the federal government. it gets 18 cents in tax from every gallon of gas bumped in the country. on top of that, you have fewer high efficiency models. every year we have seen the fuel efficiency increase. it's now at its all-time high for new vehicles. 23.9 miles per gallon in december. 23.8 for all of 2012. as a result a lot of states particularly washington, oregon, minnesota, others. they're studying vehicle use taxes. minnesota and oregon
